Las Vegas: The "Pho" Strip

QAW | Jul 3, 2007 05:09 PM

One of the wonderful side effects of the "Chinatown" developments on west Spring Mountain here in Las Vegas has been the array of Vietnamese restaurants/Pho shops springing up through that area - I believe that we now have at least eight in about a mile and a half stretch. So now comes the question - what are some of the personal favorites from those that have tried a few of them?

I am prompted to ask by my first visit to Pho Hung (5288 Spring Mountain - almost directly across the street from Hue Thai's), which recently opened. It is their third property, with the flagship in Ho Chi Minh City, and also one in Portland. The menu is simple and straight forward, but the condiments were generous and fresh, a good sign. Sampled Pho Tai Nam Sach and Bun Thit Nuong, along with a salad roll that brought a lot of flavor - extremely fresh shrimp and mint.

Rating Pho is not easy without a blind tasting, but has anyone found a particular shop in the area that stands out above the rest?
